Last Post of 2011

Hello all, 
Happy Saturday and New Years Eve to you! I want to post today to say thank you to all my blog friends. I appreciate every comment and the time you take to stop by.  Your blog friendship means a lot to me.  I can't wait till 2012, I know it's going to be a great blog year. I want to thank Joy of Joy's Life for having me on her design team.  It was my very first design team and I had a great time.  Here are two of my favorite cards using Joy's Life stamps.  Thank you Joy!



 Next, I want to thank Cindy of Scraptastic Designs. Cindy has been a wonderful 
blog friend long before she started her on digi store. I treasure her friendship! I 
was so glad she let me design on her first every design team, her digi's are great! Thank you so much Cindy for everything. Here are two of my favorite cards using her stamps.



  •  Now, I want to thank my girls from MAG for allowing me to design for them.  I love the ladies of MAG. I really like that their friendship started this fun challenge idea.  Thank you ladies for your blog friendship. Here are two cards I designed for their challenge. 

    Now, I want to thank Catarina of Docerela Creations. I had the opportunity of designing for her. I had a lot going on at the time and could only do one design.  I am grateful for her understanding and blog friendship. It was a pleasure designing for her if only just once. Thank you Catarina for your friendship an understanding. Here are two projects using her wonderful stamps. 

    Last but certainly not least is Sarah of Pink by Design. I met Sarah at Summer CHA 2010. She is so sweet and her friendship means a lot to me!  She produced two of my stamp sets and I am so grateful. Thank you Sarah for your friendship and all the wonderful stamps you bring out.  Here is a project from each stamp set.

    Thank You everyone for following me!  I hope you have a blessed New Year!

Rockin around the Christmas Tree

Hello all,

Merry Christmas Ornament

Hello all, 
Today is Scraptastic Monday's, this week you are to Create an actual Christmas tree ornament, card or a tag. Must have a Christmas ball and some bling.
I decided to do an ornament with my daughter.  We had so much fun making them!  We both colored the Christmas girl with banner.  I colored my little girl with promarkers.  My daughter colored her with color pencils.  I cut them out and put them inside the ornament.  We then placed glitter poms inside, and put the ornaments on the tree.  Super fun and easy!  
I hope you go over to Scraptastic Designs and see all the other DT's projects and play along for some great prizes.  I'm linking this up to Little Scrap Pieces "Copy Cat Friday" challenge.  Thanks so much Karen for your lovely comment and reminding me of your challenge.

This challenge is a tic-tac-toe, I chose the middle row which is: Christmas Greeting, Peppermint twist twine or red floss and buttons.

Fashionably Late

Hello all, 
I have a card today that I'm sending to my mother.  Her birthday was November 28th and I'm so late in making/sending this card.  I made three different cards because I couldn't decide.  
The first one I made, just wasn't fancy enough.  The second one was better but the third one was more her style.  I'm also entering these cards in Wacky Wednesday "Birthday Theme" challenge.  


This is the one I'm giving to her! 
The boots are from Forever Young cart and the purse is from Everyday Paper Dolls cart.  I printed the sentiment out.  I really love this card and hope my mom does too!  She loves to match her boots, purses and jackets.  

This is the first card I did!
I used a stamp from PBD for the boot and a stamp from MCT for the purse.

This is the second card similar to the first but bolder colors.

It's the freezin season!

Hello all, 
Today I have a card for two challenges. I'm having lots of fun making Christmas/Winter cards.  I have to admit that I don't send any out...CRAZY!  I make cards to give away for sets and for other people to give away but I don't.  I like my stuff to be uniform, I just buy box sets from Sam's every year.  I buy the sets that look like I would have made it...LOL  I love the card sets they sale at Sam's they are so bright and pretty.  I love the cards that have layers and raised images. I know this is crazy considering all the stuff I own Christmas/Winter related.  Maybe one year I will send out homemade cards.


First: Dilly Bean "Snowman Family" challenge.  You can download the digi for free to play along.  
Second: The Pink Elephant "Color Inspiration Photo" challenge. 


I really love this card!  The colors are so pretty and bright!  This snowman family digi is just so super cute! Everything was colored with Promarkers. I did some layering to the snowmen.  I added some pearls and a snowflake from a spellbinder die.  The sentiment is from PBD "Winter Fun" set. I hope you're having fun making all your Christmas/Winter projects.

Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Hello all, 
I have a Holiday card today for three challenges.  First: My Craft Spot "Christmas through the Window" challenge.  Second: Fantabulous Cricut "Holiday Cards" challenge.  Third: Cooking with Cricut "Candles, Wreaths and Pine Cones" challenge.  
I really love the way this card came out!  I used a digi I got for free a week ago, I don't remember where. I cut a window from the Christmas/Noel solution cart.  The image was colored with Promarkers and popped up for more depth.  I sponged the windows lightly, added some stickles to the falling snow and glossy accents to the candle.

This week you are to use Stretch Your Imagination cart page 52 only.  I had fun making this card it was pretty simple!  I cut the word winter out three time for the layers at 5.5". I added two little stones to the snowman.  The sentiment was a free download from Verve a few years ago.  The ribbon is from Hobby Lobby. I really think it's super cute!  I hope you come and play along with us this week at MAG.  Stop by and look at all the other DT's wonderful projects.

4 You

Hello all, 
Today I have a set of cards and a matching box.  I love making these for my children's teachers.  I make the box with my MS score board.  The paper is cut to size 6 1/2 x 8. You score the bottom box 1" on all sides and the lid 1 or 2 space before the 1" mark.  I wish I was better at ruler sizes.  I need to make a few more cards to go with this set. The sentiments are from Docerela Creations " Home for Christmas" set.  This is a must have set for Christmas.  This set is just so great for Christmas projects, I really love the long sentiments for curving on cards.  Home for Christmas set is on sale through the week for only $10 now that's a deal. 
 I'm entering this set in the JUGS "Set of Cards and Matching Packaging" challenge.
